This week, the singer appeared on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and was asked about the music he listened to as a kid.

After taking a tangent, MGK said right away, “Really, I’m just trying to dance around your question of what I used to listen to as a kid, and I’m like… I loved the bands boys for a bit.”
“I love it,” Clarkson told her. “There are beautiful melodies there.”
“It’s sure, it’s sure, they hold up over time. I was definitely in second grade, like,” he said, standing up a bit to show off some classic boy band dance moves.
“Oh my God, I want those pictures,” the host said in amazement.
“And then I went to a Backstreet Boys concert and threw up on the first song because the girls were so loud, they were screaming so loudly,” MGK revealed. “I don’t know how it amounted to me throwing up, but I know it happened.”

He explained that the band “went down on these hoverboards and everyone was going so crazy,” which kind of inspired him to pitch.
“Then the next gig I went back to was Destiny’s Child,” he added, remembering Nelly opening for the band and the money with her face on it raining down on the audience. “I was with my dad, and my dad was so lost.”
